Successful home working

Online & fully interactive – LIVE trainer – small groups

Even experienced home workers can struggle to stay motivated and productive without the structure of the office routine. While some enjoy the solitude, others feel disconnected and lonely. For those new to the experience of working from home, the learning curve can be steep. Many struggle to maintain their usual levels of effectiveness.

This live online training session has been designed to provide a toolkit of instant techniques for boosting the day-to-day effectiveness of home workers. We’ve distilled the most practical tips into this intensive online session, helping participants make the most of the many advantages working from home has to offer.

Small and interactive groups mean our expert trainers can respond to individuals’ needs, helping to ensure everyone completes the course feeling empowered and positive about working from home. 

What participants will learn

This intensive session is designed to have maximum practical impact in a short time. It provides tools and tips around topics including:

  • Structuring your day to maximise results
  • Maintaining motivation and energy levels
  • Managing domestic distractions
  • Maintaining a boundary between work and home – learning to switch off
  • Managing the pressure of ‘presenteeism’
  • Staying connected to and visible with colleagues
  • Staying positive and making the most of the benefits of home working
  • Managing your energy through the working day
  • Creating your own strategies for successful home working

After the course every participant receives a PDF course handbook containing everything they’ve learnt on the course and more.


How is the training delivered?

This is a live and fully interactive training session. Just like classroom training, it is delivered by an experienced tutor to a small group, ensuring plenty of chances to ask questions and discuss experiences.
